Buy it and focus on gradually accumulating parts for the restoration. Easy for me to say though - it's not my $$. I addition to the family connection, those cars have pretty good value. My buddy in Florida just sold a Super Bee clone for $29,500.00. It was column shift automatic.

I'm jealous of all these stories about cool cars that people owned back in the day. I've never tried to track down my first car - a '62 Corvair!

Thanks everyone. I wish I could buy it right now but at that price, it's not in the cards. I have a stack of receipts for parts that I've bought the Chevelle recently and buying the Super Bee might cause a divorce. lol

I'm still working on my Step Dad so maybe it will all work out.

That's why I say I'm about 90% sure it's his car. I'm just going by the odds that a car with the same options and color combo was found 2 hours from where he lived when he had his.

It was pulled from Chickasha. My Stepdad grew up in McAlester.

I like the way you think, Lee. I'll definitely do that and see what he says.

If it has remained in OK all these years, and if the current owner will cooperate, there is about a 70% chance you can get the history from the Oklahoma Tax Commission back to day one. NORMALLY OTC keeps records even back into the 50s. However, when they changed over computer systems in the 80's many of the old records were "lost". I put lost in quotes, because they still have them archived, but they are on microfilm and not searchable. My 69 Z/28 has never left Oklahoma, but it is one where the records were lost.

If you can put me in touch with the current seller (and I promise you I am not going to try and buy the car out from under you guys.... I am not a Mopar guy) I can put in a request at the Tax Commission and see what we find. If it turns out it is NOT your step dad's car, then the heartache is over.

Send me a PM if interested.

Thanks Lynn! I've messaged the seller to make sure it's ok for me to send you his information.

I hope it turns out to be your Step-Dad's car and something can be worked out on it. This thread is another reason why this is the best site on the web.
